Under-remuneration was a Type III provision that sought compensation for debts “as a result of an act or omission” for or in connection with … The subcontractor. The active negligence of the general contractor would normally lead to recovery under such a clause. In Morton Thiokol, Inc. v. Metal Building Alteration Co. (1987) 193 Cal. However.3d 1025, an appels court held that a Type III clause could be construed as compensation if it favoured the intent of the parties and if liability had not been incurred without negligence for damages. This new law (Assembly Bill 758) will come into force on 1 January 2006 and will limit the ability of general contractors to claim damages in the event of liability in the event of a construction error that is not due to the work of a subcontractor. It adds a new subsection to Section 2782 of the Civil Code and provides that, for housing contracts concluded after January 1, 2006, agreements requiring a subcontractor to exempt a contractor from a construction defect claim are not applicable, as the rights are “related to the negligence of the contractor or other contractors of the contractor. , other agents or other independent agents who must be supported directly by the contractor. , or for design defects identified by these individuals or to the extent that the claims do not result from the extent of the work of the written agreement between the parties, relate to them or relate to them.” The court justified this decision by compensation, because the negligence of the general contractor is merely not to remedy a dangerous illness caused by the offence committed by the subcontractor. The Court of Appeal set aside the subcontractor`s decision and ordered a judgment. However, the Court of Appeal found that the subcontract`s compensation clause did not require compensation from the subcontractor for active negligence of the general contractor, and it contained nothing else in the contract, indicating that the parties wished, in these circumstances, to award compensation.
The court distinguished the case because in Morton Thiokol, compensation (a general contractor) had been responsible for the repair of an existing dangerous condition. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal applied the general rule that active negligence compensation cannot be recovered under a general compensation contract.
